Aggressive behaviour is a major problem worldwide, sometimes with dire consequences.

Although there are many contributing factors, in this study we will test whether supplementing the diet with omega-3s will result in reduced aggressive behaviour in Australian prisoners.

We will discuss the outcomes with key stakeholders, write a report to Corrective Services Administrators Council, develop education about omega-3s for inmates, and form a group to oversee these translation activities.
